Lets get started !

– Choco Choco –

A delicious double dose of semi-sweet and rich dark chocolate with premium peanut butter and wild honey. Natural peanuts, premium dark chocolate, & honey to enhance the flavor.
label_choco

A classic pairing, chocolate & peanut butter. It reminds me of a reese’s cup… yummy! This one had a thicker & chunkier texture to it. I spread some of this delicious peanut butter over some apple slices. One of my go afternoon or evening snacks. This would be good on pretzels, rice cakes, or off the spoon!

– Coco Bananas –

A tropical blend of yummy bananas, cocoa and wild honey. Peanuts, a mix of natural banana flavor, real chunks of semi sweet chocolate , & MELO-O honey.
label_nana-pbcrave

I like having peanut butter with bananas , so was interested to see what this would taste like. Sometimes banana flavoring could be bad or good . It definitely was like I was eating a fresh banana with peanut butter. What did I make with this flavor? I made oatmeal by mixing in some Coco Bananas PB Crave & topped if off with some chia seeds & sliced banana.

– Cookie Nookie –

A mouth-watering mix of chocolate chips, cookie dough flavor, wild honey and premium peanut butter — it’s two classics together as one. Farm fresh peanuts, natural cookie flavoring, & chunks of real milk chocolate, with a dash of MELO-O honey.

label_cookie_pbcrave

I saved this one for last because cookie nookie just sounded like it would be the “save the best for last”. It is one of their most popular flavors. How can you go wrong with cookies & peanut butter? While mixing I got a whiff of peanut butter and vanilla ( the vanilla smell you get when you mix cookies) . It had a medium texture but still easy to spread. I was right this one was dangerously good. I ended up making an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie smoothie.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Smoothie

– Razzle Dazzle –

A twisted blend of red raspberry, wild honey, cool white chocolate and rich dreamy darkness .
Fresh peanuts, natural raspberry flavoring, a mix of semi-sweet & white chocolate, a touch of MELO-O honey.
label_razzle dazzle_pbcrave

I love raspberries & right when I opened the container I smelled it right away. I like the mixture of white & dark chocolate. This one had a thinner consistency than the rest. This would be perfect on bagels, waggles, pancakes, or toast. How did I use it? I toasted up a whole wheat bagel thin, spread some PB Crave Razzle Dazzle, topped it with sliced banana, & spinkled some chia seeds on top.

Occhio Tweezer & lash curler review

IMG_0604

I received this Occhio beauty set to review. I was in need in a pair of new tweezers so was pretty happy to get them to review.

This set is currently going for $14.77.

Perfect for teens or adults.

I really liked the colors of this set because I feel like they are different. Usually silver eye lash curlers , this one if black with a pinkish/lavender. Then the tweezers have a fun floral design against black.

Eyelash curler
light weight, springy , sturdy.
It was easy to use BUT it did not curl my lashes the way I like. It just gave them a little lift/curl. I prefer a more flirty curl.
It didn’t pinch my lashes or pull lashes which is a plus.
I once had a one of those travel size small eye lashes curlers get stuck. Imagine how much I was freaking out for those few moments. Thankfully it came off and my lashes were still there haha.

Tweezers
Tweezers are stainless steel. They have slanted tips and can grab hair easily.
I really like the floral design. My favorite thing is the case, perfect for travelling or to have in your purse.. Its easy to open & close. There is a little slit where you place the bottom of your tweezers so they stay in place. There is also a magnet to no need to worry about them falling out if you are travelling with them.
Another thing I liked is there is a mirror in the center, no worrying about it getting scratched up . Just in case you need to do a last minute touch up.

Pretzel crusted chicken

Eating chicken the same way? Looking for a new dinner idea?
These are crunchy on the outside and tender & moist in the middle.

Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps® sent me 11 of their flavors of pretzel crisps to review ( I love these pretzels! ).
To see all the different flavors check out their site here
So I was thinking what can I make with these? If you follow me on instagram I posted a snack, appetizer, & dessert. Now its time for dinner….Pretzel crusted chicken!!

IMG_1046

What you need ::

1lb Chicken tenders
1 1/2 cups of crushed Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps®- I chose the Chipotle Cheddar flavor
1/2 whole wheat flour
2 Eggs
shredded cheddar cheese ( optional)
salt
pepper
cooking spray/ oil- I used coconut oil

IMG_1047-0

First your going to smash up the pretzel crisps, you can do this in a bag or blender.

IMG_1049

Next I sprinkled some shredded cheddar cheese in the mixture.

Scramble the 2 eggs in one bowl.
Place flour, salt , & pepper in another bowl.

I cut the chicken tenders in half.

Place chicken in flour, shake off excess. Place in egg, let excess drip off. Place in crushed pretzels. I like putting the chicken down , the covering with the crushed pretzels and patting down. Place on a pan ( sprayed with oil, I used coconut oil) repeat until done.

IMG_1050

Place in oven at 350 for about 15-20 minutes flipping in between. Keep an eye on them this was my time for them to be done. Just cut a thicker piece and see if its no longer pink in the middle.

Look at this pretzel crispiness.

IMG_1056-1

I had mine with a sweet potato & broccoli. yum yum yum

IMG_1052-1

Have you had pretzel crusted chicken before? Hopefully I gave you some dinner inspiration.

You can also make these bite size and serve with ranch, bbq, honey mustard.

Rethink your pretzel!

Snack Factory Pretzel Crisps® was kind enough to send me some of their products to review. All opinions are my own.

Crest 3D White Luxe -Diamond Strong review ExpoTv

IMG_0720

Everyone wants a whiter & brighter smile. I for one feel more confident when I know my teeth are healthy and white. It helps & makes you feel confident about yourself.
A smile is one of the first things I notice.
I’m sure at one point we’ve tried one or many whitening products, I know I have. I’ve tried whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes in the past. Some of them just left my teeth sensitive & gums irritated. Even if my teeth were whiter, I wouldn’t want to use that product again because it was uncomfortable.

Crest is one of my favorite toothpaste brands so was excited when I was sent their 3D White LUXE Diamond Strong to try and review.

Crest 3D White LUXE Diamond Strong toothpaste- Brilliant Mint

IMG_0957

I like the flavor of the mint, it also didn’t leave that stale mint taste in your mouth after brushing. It left my teeth & mouth refreshed, clean, & fresh.
On the box it states that in strengthens enamel & removes up to 90% of surfaces stains in 1 week. My teeth were already pretty white but I have noticed they’ve been looking a little dull. After using this for a week ( actually a couple of days) I noticed my teeth looked brighter. That’s a plus in my book.
I noticed no sensitivity or irritation using this toothpaste.

Crest 3D White LUXE Diamond Strong- Clean mint

IMG_0958
Alcohol free with flouride , it kills bad breath germs , strengthens enamel, & prevents cavities.
Smells reminds me of winter fresh gum. Leaves your mouth feeling refreshed, cool, & clean.

Its pretty cool because when you are using this mouthwash you swish around vigorously for about a minute. There is no burning sensation. When you spit it out its all foamy. You can still see it on your teeth so you know its getting between your teeth and into the crevices where your toothbrush might have missed. Making sure your teeth will get cleaned & whitened evenly.

If you are noticing your teeth are looking a little dull, I highly recommend trying out Crest 3D White LUXE Diamond Strong for a whiter, brighter, and healthier mouth.

Herbal Essences Wild Naturals Review – ExpoTv

IMG_0132

In December I was sent Herbal Essences Wild Naturals detoxifying shampoo , conditioner , and an intensive treatment to try and review.

The first thing I did was smell it. It reminds me of a spa, it has thai lemon basil, ginger, & lemon grass.

Detoxifying Shampoo (retails for about $5.99) : A little thicker than my regular shampoo, like a thinner version of a gel. It doesn’t strip oils from your hair & leaves you hair feeling really clean. It lathers up really nice and is easy to rinse out. Helps wash away impurities from your hair.

Detoxifying Conditioner (retails for about $5.99) : Light weight & leaves hair smooth, silky & soft.

Intensive Treatment : I put it on the ends of my hair. It puts in the extra moisture your hair needs. Helping keep away the frizz & protects your hair from damage. The environment, hot showers , pollution, etc all have an affect on your hair. So giving your hair a nice treatment is good once in awhile. Use this in place of regular conditioner, leave on for 5 minutes.

After using these products in just a few days I realized how healthy and good my hair looked & felt. My hair was had a nice healthy shine, very smooth & silky , soft, felt really clean.
It didn’t weigh my hair down at all. My hair has a some wave to it and realized using Herbal Essences Wild Naturals, it helped my intensify my waves.

I noticed on bottles that it mentioned it has Cassia in it, which I wasn’t really aware of. Cassia helps strengthen your hair, gives your hair a shine, and leaves your hair soft.

I couldn’t stop touching my hair because it was so soft & silky.

Have you seen Wild Naturals in store yet? Have you tried it?
